The webinar, titled "The Creation of the Hudson River Park and the Challenges of Waterfront Resiliency," took place online on May 29, 2024, at 6:30 pm. Following the panel discussion, panelists answered questions from the audience.

Speakers delved into the depths of options for waterfront resiliency in our recent webinar. Tom Fox, author and expert on the Hudson River Park, panelists Alice Blank and Amy Chester joined us as we explored creative strategies for safeguarding the West Side waterfront as described in Tom’s new book. The conversation was moderated by Michael Oreskes, senior reporter with Steraus News. As New York City continued the revitalization of its magnificent waterfronts, creative nature-based approaches were emphasized as essential parts of the city’s plan to adapt to climate change and urban waterfront development.
